There’s already a Daily Show thread running, but I thought this segment from a few days ago deserved a thread of its own. If you missed it, it was basically a report on how often politicians have compared their opponents to Hitler or Nazis lately, and how silly and meaningless it’s become. It seemed kind of like some of the internet (Godwin’s law, and all that…) spilling out into real life, and I thought it was a great segment.
“Stop comparing your political opponents to Hitler. It demeans your opponents, it demeans you, and frankly, it demeans Hitler. You know who was Hitler? Hiter!”
So sad because it’s so funny, just like everything on that show.
